discussion and greater or concentration. of when i was the point person for president clinton in passing the brady bill which was in the late part of november of '93 and then the assault weapon ban in the house in the spring of '94, it was those two bills that were very focused on criminal access. president clinton's gun legislation post-columbine did not pass. so the notion that everybody should rely on quote-unquote the energy and force of newtown i would caution not to do that. it's clearly galvanized the country to have an honest conversation and look internally and have a serious conversation, but brady bill and the assault weapon ban were done without, quote-unquote, a columbine or what happened in virginia, any of those incidents. i do believe just in the last four years or i would say the last eight years of politics this, what happened there has made all of us have a discussion that has been sitting on the sidelines or the periphery of politics to be focused and this, obviously, tomorrow morning the president's going to introduce his legislation or his package and decide what le

[laughter] >> plenty of time. as long as you need. >> well, first of all, nike was not only the greek goddess of victory, it's a missail that -- missile that goes really fast. [laughter] the bad news about me coming to a brookings meeting for me is that it's a five-hour airplane flight. the good news is that it's a five-hour airplane flight, that i get to sit at 40,00
, and a large event down here on the mall. we were very excited yesterday to announce that chelsea clinton has joined us this year as the honorary co-chair for the day of service. she'll be appearing at the mall event. it's in the incredibly large tent that i'm sure you all have seen. she'll be joined by a number of celebrities and performers including bo biden, ben folds -- who i'm excited about from my time in college -- as well as 100 organizations from all across the capitol region that do service. and folks will be able to go down can and talk to these people, basically, it's a fair-type atmosphere, learn more about how to serve and how they can continue to do service in their communities going forward. as i mentioned, we will also have events in all 50 states. looks like right now we're on track for over 2,000 events across the country. and this is actually the first inaugural committee that has paid for staff in all 50 states, because this is a priority of the first family to see this service day both to honor the memory of martin luther king jr., but also as a tradition that we hope wi

used over 20 times since the 1950's. to give you some incidences, you will remember the 1997 clinton republican congress deficit reduction package. in the 1980's gramm-rudman was attached to the debt ceiling. and in august of 2011 the budget control act was attached to the debt ceiling. so it has been quite the norm to use presidential requests to raise the debt ceiling to do something about a deficit and debt. they called on senate democrats to run the senate to follow the regular water. the debt ceiling can originate in either house. the senate finance committee could generate a debt ceiling proposal. they could do it clean if they wanted to. they could try and embrace some spending reductions. but i think what the house is saying above all else is that they are hoping to act as soon as maybe tomorrow. then it will be incumbent upon the senate democratic majority the function. what is their idea? cleaned with attachments to it as has frequently been the case as the 1950's. we look forward to seeing what senate democrats recommend. we look for dissing with senate democrats recommend
